Seasonal update 2022: GDD, veraison is starting, preparing for tissue sampling and fungal disease management

Wednesday, August 17, 2022

Jeff Franklin, from AAFC Kentville, is sharing with us this week weather information with increasing growing degree values. Precipitations have helped to refill the soil profile, grapevines are showing a positive development, grapes are still growing and, in some cases showing the first signs of veraison. In specific cases it’s possible to observe vines with sun burn from previous weeks, which is minimum and nothing to compromise this year’s production.
